INTRODUCTION
(OUR POINT OF VIEW)

What is the best for the best player, is good for all players – this was the traditional way to create one and unique technique.

Comparison among top teams shows that such type of equality does not exist, not even among top players.

People are different.

VISUAL SPECTACLE OR DEVELOPMENT BOOST?

Almost all online videos and training depictions have one important thing in common:

Fluid, precise, and fast execution.

The first thing that comes to mind is:

If the execution is fluid, it means that the players have automatized it.

The question that draws my attention immediately is:

What is the actual influence an exercise has on Patrik’s ability to assess the situation,

as well as on the speed of his reaction, if he is able to execute it so precisely?

THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX AND PLAY OUTSIDE THE BOX

One of the most common doubts in working with children is how to teach Dora to catch a ball and make a long pass in motion without throwing “balloons”.

The solution can be found in exercises like running the playground in pairs and in groups of three where we are looking from her to keep a certain distance, popular exercise “criss-cross or eight”, etc.

We think these exercises are good, but since they are neither game nor competition, they don’t provide an emotional stimulus, and there is no situation to solve.

Therefore, they are not good enough.

THE SPIN FEINT

The “Spin Feint” may be the best way for Filip to escape from an aggressive defender, although it can be effective in passing a defender off a typical 1on1 play.

Why are the top players using it so rare?

PIVOT

The role of a line player in possession of the ball is very simple and 99% of situations are based on five elements and how they are combined: 

Why is it that line player technique is so simple, yet there are so few line players who are able to perform all five elements efficiently in a game?

PUSH UP

This is a bad push-up because the athlete:

Lowers the head in the first stage of the movement to get closer to the ground and has no power to lower the chest.

Bends the lumbar part of the spine.

Moves the body to the left and right because first he raises the left and the right side of the body.

What’s a good push-up?

ERET

Sometimes situations in sports are an example of how to turn disadvantages into advantages.

One of them is new game elements that occur as a result of a need to overcome the disadvantages.

Historically, due to the insufficient number of left-handed players, it has often been a case that right-handed players played a right-wing position.

BIOMECHANICS OF MOVEMENT AND PSYCHOMOTOR SPEED

Since the methods of handball education are based on the integral approach to an athlete, it is sometimes difficult to distinguish whether certain contents are a developmental impulse for movement biomechanics or psychomotor speed and this should be so because our goal is to impact simultaneously as many abilities as possible.

However, we should always know on which abilities we act primarily.

VASILY KUDINOV
(February 17, 1969 – February 11, 2017)
